Ricardo P. Broomfield, CO

About Ricardo

I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years later I studied voice and guitar with great professional instructors. I am familiar with different ways of learning music: from very structured and traditional methods (that we use in classical music) to more improvisational and "by ear" approaches as we often do in popular music. This helps me tailor my music teaching specifically to each student based on his/her musical preferences, abilities and learning style. I can teach all styles of music including: Pop, Rock, Blues, Country, Bluegrass, ...

Julian Y. Boulder, CO

About Julian

I graduated with a Music BA from CU Boulder in May 2014. I have played in several different ensembles on a variety of instuments including Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Voice. My classical training in combination with my experience as a song writer, multi-instrumentalist and band leader gives me a uniquely well-rounded teaching style. I aim to teach and inspire students to use music as a platform for learning important skills such as diligent practice, cognitive flexibilty, and creative expression. I grew up in Boulder and Hawaii where I gained a love for island music, Reggae, Highlife Music, Jazz and Funk. I am currently in a band called "Isa and Joe Alan" which plays original music in all these styles. I am also a professional face painter, juggler and balloon twister, and ...

Julian has been wonderful to teach Music Theory as well as Piano. He has interesting methods and uses very solid music theory, to create a larger picture which leads to a full understanding of how piano works, and of the music you play on it.

Lessons are interesting and fun. Also I find them very well-rounded. Julian is a positive instructor and I find him very respectful and simply fun to learn from.

I highly recommend Julian Y.

It's difficult to find an instructor and I feel extremely lucky that I ended up studying with Julian. I was a beginning piano player but very interested in a strong music theory base for my studies. Julian has an extremely deep knowledge of music theory and application across many styles. We have probably spent as much time on theory as on playing (my choice/naturally where our lessons have gone). He is also an excellent guitar player and i have paired relearning guitar with the piano so our lessons can range widely from piano practice to theory to guitar and back.

I find Julian extremely easy to get a long with, very good at explaining theory and leading me to my own epiphanies and conclusions that have made learning continually exciting. He is a good communicator about lessons times and has been probably more flexible than i deserve in accommodating my schedule.

As we have progressed we are now working on song writing, music notation, jazz/staff notation, working through the REAL BOOK, ear training, etc..

My greatest fear was ending up with a very parochial or didactic instructor. Julian is anything but that. I look forward to my lessons every week and have increased my time with him to twice a week.

My son has been taking drum lessons from Julian for about six months now. Julian is fantastic with him. He seems very knowledgeable and his demeanor is perfect for kids (and adults!). He likes to incorporate other instruments into the lesson as well, since my son can also play piano. He has a nice energy during lessons, keeping a good balance of having fun and learning. He also just led my son in his first group experience, where he played drums while others played guitar and keyboard. Julian was amazing at keeping everyone on task, while having fun at the same time! I would recommend Julian as a music instructor for anyone and everyone. :)

About Shannon

I have experience teaching in public schools in a classroom environment! Finally I am a trained music together teacher teaching in Boulder, CO.

The study of music has been linked to better test scores, more creative minds, and increased critical thinking abilities. For adults returning to music or picking it up for the first time can be a rewarding hobby, a hidden passion or desire, or a change of schedule. Music can be for anyone! *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are designed for each individual student. No two ...

Shannon is just the best piano teacher ever! She is always professional, always prompt, and always fun and encouraging for my sons (age 8). It might seem like teaching twins would be easy; just give the same lesson twice! But Shannon immediately noticed the differences in their learning styles and has tailored each lesson to meet each one of them at their own learning level. We have concerts and homework. We have great lessons where they sailed though and got gold stars and lessons where we learned that more practice is needed. Shannon makes it fun for them, they are always excited to see her. But she insists on attention and pushes them to learn. I would recommend Shannon to anyone wanting to learn to play the piano!!

Excellent Instructor Overall

"Awesome teacher" 5/5 stars Boulder Guitar Studio Review
I wouldn't consider getting instruction from anybody but Lee. From his lifetime devotion to music, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of musical styles and playing techniques, which he uses to customize lessons to the student's particular goals. Besides guitar and bass, I spent a lot of time with Lee studying songwriting -- he's an awesome writer himself and completely open about sharing all the things he has learned over the years.
That willingness to adapt to my particular needs and desires, along with his true passion for all types of music, makes Lee an outstanding teacher.

Mary F. Denver, CO

About Mary

I've been playing piano since I was 6 yrs. old, and guitar and organ since I was 13. I've been able to use music in so many ways, and that is the opportunity I want for my students. From singing in school and church choirs, to accompanying and directing them, I've had a lot of enjoyable experiences. I've had the fun of performing solo and with bands, and have been teaching music for about 25 yrs, both privately and in the schools. My BA is in music education and my Masters is in individual performance. I've taught K-Jr College music classes in general music, chorus, piano, guitar, and theory. I think my favorite form of teaching is still one-on-one lessons. Working with one student allows me to adjust my teaching to their particular learning style and needs. *** Lesson Details *** I'm

Extremely patient

I've loved banjo music for years but never had the courage to learn how to play until recently. I'm a senior citizen with absolutely no musical background. What I like best about Mary is that she's totally patient and encouraging but at the same time pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I learn something new with each lesson. When I struggle with how to do something, she suggests different ways to attack the problem or ways to work around it. In just a few months she's helped me be able to play a song for someone that they can actually recognize, which was the first goal I had set for myself. I look forward to many more goals. I'm so glad to have Mary as my teacher!

Practice more

Mary is an excellent teacher. Having been a teacher for 20 years, I tend to closely observe other teachers. Mary had much more to teach me than I was willing to learn. Playing the guitar is a psycho motor skill and as such it must be practiced diligently to gain the muscle memory necessary to perform the tasks. I didn't do it but Mary kept encouraging me and the more she did, the more I practiced, although I still fall woefully short of 30 minutes every day. Her lessons in music theory, however, are paying dividends since I also play some other instruments.
She is kind, patient, skilled and knows music inside out. I don't think I could have chosen a better teacher. I will start again as soon as I am able. Thanks Mary, job well done!

Bob S. Boulder, CO

About bob

The music heard around my house in my youth had a country twang until Elvis came along and the music rocked and rolled! In the late 60's I heard "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf and I was sold! While living in Atlanta Georgia during the 80"s I toured with The Original Drifters (Under the Boardwalk/Up On the Roof) and a Supremes cover band called Mocha. They were booked by the William Morris Agency who would actually fly us to gigs around the country! Fun! One weekend would see us in Florida the next in Arizona. To learn more about music I moved to California and became a student at Musicians Institute of Hollywood. Being exposed to one of the coolest musical environments 24/7 was a dream come true. For my hard work I received a Student of the Year award and was eventually hired to work ...

Great for a beginner

Bob was always courteous and friendly and willing to be flexible with me as a very beginner guitarist. I was classically-trained on other instruments and he was fantastic at getting me passed the biases I had learned previously to reach the goals that I wanted.
